The First International Festival of Peace Illustration in the Narrations of Saadi, Hafiz and Mowlana 2021

The First International Festival of Peace Illustration in the Narrations of Saadi, Hafiz and Mowlana

Theme: Peace and Friendship in the works of the three brilliant poets Saadi, Hafiz, and Mowlana

 For centuries, distinguished poets and scholars have admired the works of Saadi, Hafiz, and Mowlana, the three open minded Iranian Persian poets whose humanitarian thoughts are clearly reflected in their collected works. Their poems offer lots of recommendations on making peace and philanthropic efforts which can lay the ground for establishing peace and friendship between all people and nations.

The First International Festival of Peace Illustration in the Narrations of Saadi, Hafiz and Mowlana is hosted by Shiraz, the cultural capital of Iran and the birthplace and home of Saadi and Hafiz, the two outstanding Persian poets who have gained worldwide fame.

The competition themes:

Peace and Friendship in the works of the three brilliant poets Saadi, Hafiz, and Mowlana


When territory can be taken by gentle means, Shed not blood by your strivings in conflict:

By your manhood! All earth’s rule Is not worth one blood-drop’s trickling to earth! I’ve heard that Jamshid of blessed constitution.

Wrote thus upon a stone above a wellspring: At this spring many like us have drawn breath,

Then gone on as they closed their eyes: We’ve taken the world in manliness and force,

But carried it not with us into the tomb!

Saadi: The sons of Adam are limbs of each other

Having been created of on essence. When the calamity of time afflicts one limb. The other limbs cannot remain at rest. If thou hast no sympathy for the name of a man.

Hafiz: Plant the tree of friendship, that, to fruit, the heart’s desire bringeth: Up-pluck the bush of enmity, that countless troubles bringeth.

Hafiz: The ease of two worlds is the explanation of these two words: With friends, kindness; with enemies, courtesy.

Hafiz: Be in love with God, the Only True Friend, and keep away from His enemies. Think fair and be fair so that you can turn evils away

Mowlana: If you are going to war with me here. I'll do keep peace with you dear

And if you start a war with me, I'll go to a peaceful place. As the God's world is not limited in any case. One world is at war but what reigns over the other world is peacefulness. It is only in the meaningful world that what matters is not to make conquest. Water and fire, like reason and love, are brothers. And they represent the same essence, although seemingly different to others.
